Located on Richmond Hill in the leafy suburb of Richmond-upon-Thames, the Roebuck is an attractive traditional pub offering breathtaking views across London and food and drink to match. There has been a pub on this site since the 16th century although the current building dates back to 1741.

Company description
The Roebuck, on Richmond Hill, is a striking traditional pub in the pleasant suburb of Richmond on Thames. It is uniquely situated offering beautiful views across London, an ideal relaxing place to enjoy our lovely food and drink. This pub is regarded as one of the oldest pubs still on its original site in the area of Richmond. Dating back to 1500s, the building was rebuilt in 1741. In 1952, the pub had a new roof fitted. The tradesmen made an amazing discovery of silvers and ‘treasures’ attributed to the highway men that visited in the 1700s. The Roebuck boasts one of the most beautiful views in London as it overlooks Richmond Hill and millionaire’s row.
The building is protected by Act of Parliament for over 100 years. The Roebuck's has fed and watered rock'n'roll neighbours like Pete Townshend, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall over the years. However, The Roebuck can rightly be considered a superstar in its own right. Other famous patrons past and present include actor Richard Harris, Princess Alexandra, actor Jon Hannah, Sir David Attenborough, Ricky Gervais and TV and radio presenter Fearne Cotton. The pub's picturesque location was featured in the film "The Hours", starring Nicole Kidman, and also played a starring role in a recent Sherlock Holmes movie production. Read more...
The Roebuck has a terrace from which you can enjoy the wonderful vista, looking over the Terraced Gardens, Millionaires Row to the lush tree-lined banks of the Thames. The view is so powerful that J.M.W. Turner drew the picturesque Petersham Meadows.Richmond is a lovely area in London, with plenty in the environs to enjoy from Henry VIII’s Hampton Court Palace, the largest Royal Park – Richmond Park and Twickenham Stadium. The pub has excellent public transport connections with bus and train stations all less than a mile away. Show less...
